Bison Confirm Coach Tait for Season 2019 / 20

The Trane sponsored Basingstoke Bison are pleased to confirm that Player Coach Ashley Tait will once again be at the helm of the Herd for the 2019 / 20 season.

Following a meeting earlier this week Bison’s John Neville confirmed, “Fans have been asking recently what our plans are for next season especially after the turmoil of last summer. Ashley signed for an initial 2 years with the club and during this season has delivered a fast, attacking high paced tempo of hockey which the fans have loved”.

John continued, ”We have started making plans for next season and will be working hard to bring new sponsors and partners on board in the months ahead”.

Ashley said, “I'm really excited to be back again for next season. Myself and family have been made to feel at home here and the support I've had from everyone involved has been first class.

With the work John, Tosh, Gary, Glenn, Phil and I have achieved this season we have a great foundation to build the club both on and off the ice, we've certainly moved along way from where we were last summer as an organisation and we aim to keep moving in the right direction and keep the club where it belongs”.
